Radiology Technologist Schools in Georgia - GA


Georgia does not mandate that its radiologic technologists become licensed, however, those who wish to enter this allied health care profession will need technical training through comprehensive programs. Despite lacking a licensure requirement, employers in Georgia rarely, if ever, hire untrained radiologic technologists. Most employers prefer a radiologic technologist with at least one to two years of training and national certification, obtainable through examination after graduation. Two national certification organizations for future radiologic technologists worth considering are the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB).

Courses that students will likely take in these programs include composition, math, computer concepts, anatomy and physiology, chemistry, radiographic imaging, equipment and maintenance, patient care, clinical radiography, radiation protection, radiographic procedures as well as a clinical internship.

A clinical internship, required of virtually all radiologic technologist programs, will be held at nearby medical facilities that partner with each school. Examples in Georgia of facilities that host these rotations are the Atlanta Medical Center in Atlanta, Bacon County Hospital and Health System in Alma, Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Colquitt Regional Medical Center in Moultrie, WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Atlanta, and DeKalb Medical at North Decatur.
